The bedtime song
I had a very energetic 2 year old and bed time used to be such a task!
Eventually , I thought up a song that would involve actions which I knew would tire her  and it worked wonders!

So here goes my song!

Click your fingers
Click your fingers

Rub your tummy
Rub your tummy

Ride your bicycle –literally pretend pedal while sleeping on your back as if riding a bike !
Ride your bicycle – amid all the giggling .. this could go on for  4 or 5 times !

Wave,  wave your hands

Dancing and dancing!

And all fall down...pretend  all are in sleepy land!!

It worked like magic...10 years later , we still sing the song to my nephews and nieces!

The best memory I have of her singing it or at least trying to sing it...and still trying to do the actions while half asleep...I was such a proud mama!

What a blast !
